  • Profs. Daganzo and Cervero presented their papers at the VREF Workshop 2011, held at Beijing, China, Oct. 26-29, 2011.

  • Prof. Robert Cervero and Dr. Jin Murakami present in HSR Symposium, Dec. 2010


                Cervero and Murakimi presented their paper, California High-Speed Rail and Economic Development: Station-Area Market Profiles and Public Policy Responses, to an international panel in the California High Speed Rail Symposium, held at the University of California, Berkeley, Dec. 2-3, 2010.

  • Prof. C. F. Daganzo developed a new textbook, Public Transportation Systems, and the complementary problem set. Dec. 2010

  • With Prof. C. F. Daganzo, Barcelona to Launch BRT Network, April 2010

  •             On February 24, 2010, the City of Barcelona, Spain, publicly announced ambitious plans to implement a next-generation, bus rapid transit (BRT) network in January 2011; see news (in Spanish). The new system, called RetBus, will cover the whole city with fast, high-frequency lines that will allow people to travel anywhere in the city quickly and reliably; see System Map. The Volvo Center collaborated on the plans with the Center for Transport Innovation (CENIT), a not-for-profit research center headed by U.C. Berkeley alumnus F. Robusté, also in Barcelona. Prof. Carlos Daganzo conceived the advanced network system and led the scientific research effort underlying the plan development; see Scientific basis.
